Article of the Week
Poverty, ethics and discrimination: How culture plays into cognitive research
A new paper published in Nature Human Behavior discusses the intersection of culture and cognitive psychology, focusing on three main areas of overlap: poverty and scarcity/cognitive bandwidth, dual-process morality, and bias. The paper recommends that researchers in these areas of psychology engage in deeper understanding of the cultural elements of individuals' decisions and behavioral responses. The author recommends interdisciplinary collaboration when exploring these research questions in the future.
